It was a fighting, driving Mohawk team that played, its \vay through the sec- tionaj, district, and state finals tournament. We can't be too proud of those 12 boys who gave the best they had to bring Mason City to the fore in basketball records. They played and overcame obstacles that would have sent a less spirited outfit to the sidelines long before the. state finals were reached. It took courage and determination to go out and win games that seemed impossible to win. It took real sportsmanship for those boys to refrain from becoming angered \vhen crowds would disregard the fine playing ability of the Mohawks and boo lustily. Mason Ciiyans are satisfied that their-team fought its heart out to bring honors to Mason City. We appreciate what "Judge" and the boys have done in showing Iowa that the Mohawks are once again a top team in Iowa basketball. Hats off to the Mohawks and a carload of lemons to the fans at the tournament whose jealousy of Mason City overshadowed their appreciation of real basketball ability,--K. E. K. J. J.

S PLAN TO ENTER MUSIC CONTEST AT CLEAR LAKE TEACHER OFFERS SUGGESTIONS TO AID HILL PEOPLE Mountaineers Long Neglected, States ' Tennessee Woman (EDITOR'S N'OXfi: The following interview of Miss Ella Enstow was held before the teachers' convention in the form of a "demonstration Interview," with teachers and students witnessing the procedure. Mr, Kaufman, a member of the GJobe-GazeUe ne«-s staff, was a Cub-Gazette editor several years ago.) By DAVID B. KAUFMAN Pretty, soft-spoken, energetic Ella Enslow, for five and one- half years a teacher in America's "dark spot," the rugged mountain country of Tennessee where illiteracy prevails, Friday offered as her suggestions for the betterment of conditions there three steps: 1. legislation which would enforce the school laws, at present loosely observed. 2. Better roads, which would provide easier access to the isolated mountain regions. 3. Free textbooks, .a godsend for the underprivileged mountain children. As her explanation for the illiteracy in that region, Miss Enslow, who in private life is Mrs. Lena Davis Murray, declared it was due to the self-imposed isolation of the mountaineers. "They came to the region many years ago, with the intent of working as lumbermen and in the mines, and when those resources were exhausted, remained, barely eking out an existence." Best Teachers Unavailable Another reason for the laxity in education in places such as Shady Cove, Tenn., where she taught, she said, was that the "best teachers refused to go to such isolated villages. "However," she added, "if a girl desires to be a teacher, she should be prepared to be a nurse, maid, washwoman and everything else, if you really love the profession. I did."

Will Compete in Sub-District Contest 3ULTOX LEARNER CHAKLENE HOKN FRED O'GREEN Mason City Students Will Participate in Sub-District Meet Charlene Horn, flutist, Milton Learner, v i o l i n i s t , and Fred O'Green, clarinetist, three seniors with outstanding records in band or. orchestra, will compete at Clear Lake March 31 and April 1 in the sub-district meet along with 14 other contestants. Milton Learner, who merited "superior" in the regional contest last spring, will play the first movement of Mendelssohn's "E Minor Concerto." Fred O'Green looks to teaching as a profession. Living conditions in Shady Cove, which has since been inundated as it was part of the land, where Norris dam was built, were at an extremely low ebb when Miss Enslow first arrived to work at the school. The average annusl cash income of the mountaineer is $8, she stated. Part of this is due to the fact that the poorly- clothed, poorly-fed mountaineer never applies for relief aid. These conditions exist not only in the Tennessee Cumberland!;, where Shady Cove is, but in the Kentucky Cumberlands, also in the deep south among the sharecroppers, said Miss Enslow, who has visited these regions. "Wrote Magazine Articles "Why did I become a school teacher'.' Well, when I was a child we played school and I always seemed to be chosen as teacher, and I always seemed to want to be one; then too, in the mountains, there is very little choice, if any. I adopted the name Ella Enslow from, my first' teacher, whom I had always admired." Miss Enslow wrote a series ot. articles in the Saturday Evening Post a few j'ears ago, the result being she received a flood of gifts for the school from contributors in Hawaii, Canada, Cuba and the United States. Because of this unexpected avalanche of assistance, her school became one of the best equipped institutions in the mountains. The southerner has the interest of her people at heart, and although she no longer teaches there, contributes financial assistance to the hill country people who, as she says, "have been forgotten for so many years." She is a tribute to the teaching profession, a noble example oE the extent to which teachers will go to aid their "people." STUDENTS! Your Photograph is Your Friends' Most Cherished Possession.

MASON CITY By KEN KEW It was a drawn and tired Mo- wk basketball team that was jeaten 34-31 by Diagonal. After laving used every ounce of ve- erve strength to build up a 21 to 3 lead in the first half, the weary ilason City team couldn't quite tern the tide of basket scoring hots by Bud Beymer in the lattev lalf. Cooper and Brisbine opened he game with long hits from be- lind the free throw line. Pickell nd Colloton then began to connect on tip in shots and the Mo- lavvks stunned Diagonal by lead- ng 12 to 3 at. the end of the first [Viarter. Max Ives and Bud Beymer of Diagonal began to click in the econd frame with shots from far Hit on the court, but the fire- vagoa type of basketball bein« )layed by the Mohawks was still lolding out so that the half ended il to 13 with the Mohawks lead- ng In the third period the Mohawk defense completely fell apart and Diagonal took advantage ot the act as it piled up 15 points and ook a 29 to 26 lead as the period ended. From that point on the rame was over as far as the Mo- lawks were concerned because hey were fairly dead on their feet and the co-ordination which had been so brilliant in the Sac City ;ame was gone.
